This resort hotel was a bit dated, but it worked for us. The location is great. We enjoyed the evening safari and during the day, seeing agoutis and other small animals on the grounds. There were bats at dusk, but were more fascinating than anything. The pool was quite relaxing and the food was very good. The views from the... More

After a business trip was completed in Panama City, my fiancé and I travelled into the rainforest. Wasn't expecting much, but the hotel end up being a resort type of hotel that was very clean with a modern look and feel. The rooms were nice, with views that were amazing. The grounds were vast and surrounded by the jungle. The... More

The overall experience was just okay at this property. What it has going for it is the location and Gamboa Tours. I would highly recommend using Gamboa Tour company. The tours were well organised and informational. My 7 year old enjoyed them all. The rooms were moldy and could do with a complete remodel. Everyone was friendly and helpful on... More

Great walking tour to see howler monkeys in the forest. Free night safari to see sloth and cayman. Children loved it. Huge pool, buffet in restaurant every... More

This is a good resort for adults who like plants and birds. The grounds are amazing. Beautiful tropical plants are everywhere, thousands of birds are singing and the view of the lake with hills in the distance is spectacular. Our hotel room was spacious and beautiful. The large swimming pool was nice for adults, but did not have much for... More

The best part about this hotel is the property itself. The night safari is free and we got to see two sloths as well as some other animals. The rooms are larger with large balcony. The beds are kinda hard. The buffet is ok.
